Swimmer swimming is all set to begin! We just wanted to welcome everyone to another season of swimming with Rails Swimming and the YMCA. Below you’ll find a few reminders about the upcoming season. Please note: We will have practice Monday evening, June 4th since there is not a swim meet that day.

Remember: You must attend the practice you signed up for at registration due to pool & staff capacity.
Note: With meets most Mondays, we will not have evening practices those days. However – we will on Monday, June 4th. On Mondays, evening swimmers are invited to attend the corresponding morning practice(s) if they would like.

**If your child is age 11 and up their meet is Friday, 10 and younger is Saturday
Maroon & Gold Teams
Each child is either on the maroon or gold team. THIS IS NOT ACCORDING TO ABILITY. This is a random split across all age groups so that our swim meets are not over crowded. Please only sign up and report to the meet your child should be in. A COMPLETE list will be sent via email, as registration is just ending and we haven’t got the entire team split up. Each team will have 2 home meets, 1 away meet, plus come together for the conference meet.
